Scheduled Maintenance for Your 2020 GMC Acadia

What is the maintenance schedule for the 2020 GMC Acadia?

Here’s Why 2020 GMC Acadia Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your GMC Acadia and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Acadia could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Acadia maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2020 GMC Acadia!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, GMC themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Acadia's life, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2020 GMC Acadia problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your GMC Acadia Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2020 GMC Acadia for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Acadia. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2020 GMC Acadia. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Acadia may need a replacement battery sooner. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your GMC Acadia battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Acadia) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your GMC Acadia won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2020 GMC Acadia's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2020 Acadia. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2020 GMC Acadia.

This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your GMC Acadia's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine GMC Acadia maintenance, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C.

2020 GMC Acadia Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2020 GMC Acadia. Get answers to common GMC Acadia maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have GMC Acadia alignment checked? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my GMC Acadia to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older GMC Acadia engines.
  •  Why are my GMC dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your GMC Acadia in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
